Data Structure & Algorithms Fibonacci Series


Advertisements


Fibonacci series generates the subsequent number by adding two previous numbers. Fibonacci series starts from two numbers − F0 & F1. The initial values of F0 & F1 can be taken 0, 1 or 1, 1 respectively.

Fibonacci series satisfies the following conditions −

Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2

Hence, a Fibonacci series can look like this −

F8 = 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13

or, this −

F8 = 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21

For illustration purpose, Fibonacci of F8 is displayed as −

Fibonacci Iterative Algorithm

First we try to draft the iterative algorithm for Fibonacci series.

Procedure Fibonacci(n)
   declare f0, f1, fib, loop 
   
   set f0 to 0
   set f1 to 1
   
   display f0, f1
   
   for loop ← 1 to n
   
      fib ← f0 + f1   
      f0 ← f1
      f1 ← fib

      display fib
   end for
	
end procedure

Fibonacci Recursive Algorithm

Let us learn how to create a recursive algorithm Fibonacci series. The base criteria of recursion.

START
Procedure Fibonacci(n)
   declare f0, f1, fib, loop 
   
   set f0 to 0
   set f1 to 1
   
   display f0, f1
   
   for loop ← 1 to n
   
      fib ← f0 + f1   
      f0 ← f1
      f1 ← fib

      display fib
   end for
